    Dear all,

    In my spare time, I work as a commissioning editor for e-International Relations, a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing students, academics, and laymen with free articles on every aspect of the 'international'.

    After a little bit of arm-twisting, I managed to convince Prof. Amit Gupta to contribute an article on the international politics of Star Trek.

    I thought I'd share the finished product with you.

    While I don't agree with all the author's interpretations and conclusions, it was a great article.

    :)

    I'm trying to commission another article which comes from a different angle at the moment.
